|09:00 – 09:30||Welcome and Registration|
|09:30 – 10:15||INTRODUCTION: A GLOBAL VISION|
|• Prof. Juan Luis López Cardenete, Academic Director of the Meeting, IESE Business School
• Jesús Navarro, Partner, Deloitte Spain, and Coorganizer of the Meeting
Speaker: José María Marín Quemada, President, Spain's National Authority for Markets and Competition (CNMC)
|10:15 – 11:30||THE UNITED STATES, EUROPE AND CHINA IN PREPARATION FOR PARIS 2015: RESPONSIBILITIES, COSTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS|
|The United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2015 will be a key source of new actions and commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Europe has almost single-handedly spearheaded and borne witness to the fight against climate change by assuming the costs. But given the global scope of the problem, the involvement of countries such as the United States and China, Russia and other emerging countries is necessary. There must be a global commitment.
Moderator: Pedro Antonio Merino, Chief Economist and Director of Economic Research, Repsol
Speaker: Teresa Ribera, Director, IDDRI (Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations, Sciencespo Paris)
• Rafael Mateo, CEO, Acciona Energía
• José Miguel Villarig, President, Association of Producers of Renewable Energies (APPA)
|11:30 – 12:00||Coffee Break|
|12:00 – 13:15||WILL THE "BUSINESS AS USUAL" APPROACH EVEN BE A POSSIBILITY IN THE FUTURE? EUROPE WILL HAVE TO CONSIDER ITS OPTIONS|
|The three-pronged dilemma of safety, competitiveness and the environment can be organized in many different ways using different energy models. Europe must assume a clear strategic position in light of these priorities, given that the current situation of energy dependence, supply costs and lack of consensus on sensitive matters such as defense, diplomatic relations and energy has placed the continent in a highly delicate situation.
Moderator: Claudio Aranzadi, former Spanish Minister of Industry and Energy
Speaker: Prof. Gonzalo Escribano, Director, Energy Program, Elcano Royal Institute
• José Folgado, President, Red Eléctrica de España
• José Luis López de Silanes, President, CLH
• Marcelino Oreja, CEO, Enagas, S.A.
|13:30 – 14:45||THE CONSUMER PARADIGM: EVERYTHING IS DONE FOR THEM, BUT IS IT BEING DONE WITH THEM?|
The customer is becoming a new player who is demanding greater participation and taking on different roles as generator and consumer. All this has produced a new paradigm, given that the possibilities offered by technology to place the client at the center of the utilities system have turned the client into a new system player.
|14:45 – 16:15||Lunch|
|16:15 – 17:30||OIL & GAS: THE IMPACT OF AN UNCONVENTIONAL REVOLUTION|
The unconventional revolution has continued its course and seems to have consolidated its position in the United States and Canada in a situation of guaranteed, competitive supply. The transfer of this energy revolution to other regions will have to be confirmed in coming years. This has led to a disparity between oil and gas prices. However, the scope of the unconventional revolution may have to be questioned or moderated to some extent, given the collapse of Brent oil prices by more than 50 percent over the last 6 months and the possibility that the OPEC countries may allow these moderate prices to drop even further or stay at that level for some years to come.
|17:30 – 17:45||Break|
|17:45 – 19:00||THE ENERGY MODEL OF THE FUTURE: THE END OF AN ERA OR A TURNING POINT IN THE INDUSTRY CONFIGURATION?|
This is the question that must be raised in the current context to examine all the options and define the energy model we want.
Speaker: Prof. Pedro Rivero, Member of the Advisory Board, Cuadernos de Energía magazine and Chair of Financial Economics and Business Accounting, Universidad Complutense
|19:00 – 19:30||Closing|
